Gainsborough’s Amy Grocock came home first in the Grantham Sprint Triathlon, on a good day for the family.

Sher time of 1.01.49, for the 400m swim, 18k bike and 5k run was a personal best at the event by over two minutes.

Overall she was 14th, while husband Stuart took 22nd and nephew Aiden finished on the podium in third.

Stuart lauded his wife’s efforts, at the start of a year that will see the West Lindsey Leisure Centre fitness instructor travel to Australia for the World Duathlon Championships.

“Having got second in this race last year it was good for her to go one better,” he said.

“With the Lincsquad four-race series this year, that’s one win with three still to come.”

Stuart’s son Jake Davies was in action in the Burton Waters triathlon, his second ever race, and crossed the line in 45th position.
